DID YOU KNOW?
Pink Lady® apple, also known under its major Cripps Pink cultivar name, originated in Australia in 1973 after John Cripps, crossed Golden Delicious and Lady Williams apple varieties. The result was a vibrantly pink apple with a unique tangy flavour, the first apple to blossom but the last to harvest. As a high-quality standards trademark, only few other cultivars are approved to be sold under Pink Lady® brand (Rosy Glow and Lady in Red), like only selected and licensed growers can use its name.
